Animals of all shapes and sizes find themselves being used as the theme for slot games. This time around it’s the panther that is the subject for this entertaining IGT game. ‘Prowling Panthers’ may sound a bit of a worrying title, especially if you’re something they like eating, but with its 720 different ways to win there are some big profits awaiting you here.
The game is set in the rainforest where the panther resides. That forms the backdrop and is certainly attractive to look at. It might take you a little while to get used to the look of the game. It has five reels but the first has three rows of symbols, the second has four, the centre one has five and then it’s back to four and three for the final two reels.
As I’ve mentioned there are 720 different ways to win, so how does that happen? It’s down to the Multiway Xtra feature that pays winning combinations in both directions and also on adjacent reels. This means there are no standard paylines for you to have to consider activating. Playing the game costs between £0.50 and £100.
With a slightly different look to the game and the huge number of winning combinations, it’s really important to take a look through the paytable and the game rules. They will teach you all that needs to be known about how the game works and how you can win playing the game. Before playing for real, have some free games to put into practice what you’ve just learnt.
The high value symbols in the game are all theme-related. There’s a toucan, a parrot and of course the black panther. The wild symbols is the 2x icon and is stacked on the second, third and fourth reels. This can of course substitute for other symbols to get you some wins out of nowhere. It’s a little bit different here and again a good look through the paytable and game rules is advisable.
Each 2x Wild symbols counts as two of the winning symbol and this can really bring about some excellent wins. This magical Wild can’t do everything though and it’s not possible for it to substitute for the scatter symbol which is the golden panther symbol. Doing so would of course make it far easier to trigger the bonus game. The rest of the reels are filled up with the lower value Ten to Ace playing cards. Five of the panther symbols pays you 500x your line bet so that’s well worth aiming for,
Operating the game won’t cause you any problems and there’s an autospin feature that can set between ten and fifty automated spins of the reels.
